And now for the fun part…

If you read my post this week on “How our stuff might be making us sicker,” then you know I’ve been slowly decluttering my house, and I happened to find some goodies for you! This week, I’m giving away a copy of Dr. Ginevra Liptan’s newest book, “The FibroManual” and a tin of The Fay Farm’s Warming CBD Muscle Rub.

I think “The FibroManual” is one of the best fibromyalgia books on the market right now. Dr. Liptan brings an interesting perspective to fibromyalgia because she actually has it! You can read a Q & A with her here!

I think you’ll also enjoy trying out The Fay Farm’s products. They’re all natural and made on a small family farm in Washington state. I’m completely addicted to their CBD Serenity lotion and use it every night to help with sleep and aches/pains. The muscle rub is great to help work out tight spots especially in the neck or upper back. You can check out my previous review of the CBD Muscle Rub here!

Enter the giveaway using the Rafflecopter form below. The giveaway is open now through Wednesday, Sept. 14, at midnight. I’ll randomly select a winner using Rafflecopter’s winner generator and contact he/she via email. Due to shipping costs, this giveaway is only open to U.S. residents.
